Booking.com indicated reduced tariff for 2 nights but only 1 night was at the discount price. Dinner and breakfast were good value. Bathroom could do with a refitting. Older building was good for noise reduction with nice thick walls.

Very helpful staff. Decore is a little tied. Good location. Good on site free parking. Restaurant has a limited menu but the food is good value and tastes great. Bar has a happy hour with half price drinks which are not that badly priced anyway.

Great friendly service, clean and reasonably comfortable. I wouldnt recommend the food or coffee. The decor is in need of a major update as the name Diplomat and the style do not go hand in hand. It felt more like Id walked into a council library.

A great hotel for the price. Lovely gardens, easy parking. Rooms clean and spacious. A very lovely central atrium. Staff friendly. Loved the jelly beans near the newspapers! Good breakfast buffet. Soft clean bed.

Worth every $$$ nice and clean and room for the kids. Bathroom had shower and bath so u could relax. Had a great night sleep with comfort. Decent pillows not flat with extra in the cupboard. Good menu available if you wanna just stay at the motel instead of heading out.

Service and staff at this hotel are very friendly and efficient. Parking is great and very convenient. Rooms are large and have ample space for whatever your into. Tv is good and has a few movie channels. Furniture and decor are very dated and need a refresh, was pretty happy to give this place 3 stars however, the water pressure...

We were disappointed with this hotel. Book via online sites for best deals. Room service is advertised as available to 9:30pm. I was refused room service at 9pm. Rooms are very hot, air conditioning is poor and the noise from neighbouring Go Kart centre can be loud at night. Shower pressure is great and rooms were very clean.

The room was nice, the Reception staff were great and the food was nice. The only thing was is the Hair dryer was ineffective and there needs to be another seat so that 2 people can sit out on the Balcony.

Hi there, thanks for the feedback! We're really pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. Hair dryers have been a topic of conversation around here this week. I am pleased to say that we will be replacing these with better units that don't hang off the wall during the refurbishment. Hope to see you again soon

The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was delicious 😋 The king size bed was clean and comfortable as was our room. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future. Ample parking.

The hotel is well located near Kingston and Manuka however it is in need of refurbishment. The rooms were noisy and neighbours could be heard easily. The breakfast was basic but OK. There was also a half empty bottle of water in the refridgerator. Probably a little too expensive for what you get.

Hi AnnieL, thank you for letting us know of your experience. I am sorry that it did not met your expectations. We have already commenced refurbishments behind the scenes and these will start spilling into the public areas late this month. I do hope that you will try the hotel again in the future
